Subject: Where's the Pin Boys?
Mr Fulcher would be there waiting for us to arrive so he could check us in on the attendance cards and we'd bowl eat chips and drink pepsis and try to hit the pin boys who were probably winos called in to earn a little cash (no automatic pinsetters here). Meantime, Mr Fulcher sat at the counter BS'n with the owner all the while with a large draft beer sittin' in front of him - filled to the brim as we arrived....down to the bottom by the time we left. And years later, I thought...Hmmm there were at least 7 gym classes in a day for that teacher. I wonder how Mr Fulcher managed to stagger back to the school or get home on Fridays. Wished I had gym 9th hour just to see what condition the "condition" was in.
Good film by the way, that in an honest and clear manner gives the basics of bowling. However I have yet to ever see a bowling alley with experts on the premises to offer up a lesson. Never heard of such a thing. Maybe in NYC?
